Rise Above

"If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start [...].

You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. 
You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. 
It's the only good fight there is."
Charles Bukowski

"Some people don't have a lick of common sense.
I don't have a lick of a lollipop. But I do have love on the tip of my tongue, so that's good."

"Human nature is like water.
It takes the shape of its container."
